About me

After completing a degree in fashion design at the University of the Arts in London, I moved back to Mexico to work for fashion labels. ​ Longing for a more expansive and a more narrative-driven form of creative expression, I decided to pursue my interest in filmmaking, which I had harboured since I was very young. ​ I have recently completed my BA degree in Film and Digital Cinematography at the Met Film School, and have directed a feature-length documentary and a short film. I'm passionate about lighting and camerawork, about great and meaningful storytelling in film, and about creating and directing pieces with substance, insight, and humanity.
